Fun At the CLA Show!!!

I know that I have been quite lately.  There are some really big reasons.  Some of which I can't share yet, but here is one that I can.  Last week I was in Clemmons, NC at the Carolina Longarm Association Quilt Show.  I left my house last Tuesday morning and got home last night around 9PM.   I am so very glad that I joined this talented and sharing group!  I can't think of anything that could be better then a week of talking longarming and making new friends!

The CLA is a professional longarming group, so as you can imagine the competition was stiff.  The quilts are absolutely gorgeous!  We did challenge quilts to show off our styles, or in my case just to say that I did one.  I left mine to the absolute last minute, but I felt it was really important to contribute.  It took me longer to load the quilt then it did to actually quilt it.  Next time I will plan mine out earlier, but at least I had one hanging.
My Millie got a lot of attention.  It was fun to show the attendees what a longarm is and how we use them to quilt their quilts.   My next couple  of blog  posts will have some pictures of the vendors, show quilts and challenge quilts.
